A man has died after being pepper-sprayed by police in NSW’s Central West.
Police said they attended the Wellington home after they received reports of a domestic dispute and used capsicum spray on a 29-year-old man after a “brief struggle”.
The man was arrested and then lost consciousness, police say.
CPR was performed by officers until paramedics arrived but the man was pronounced dead when he arrived at Wellington Hospital.
The state crime command homicide squad is investigating the circumstances surrounding the incident and their investigation will be subject to an independent review.
